Mylius 18e35

I love this boat and I love the spirit of the guys behind it:

"Mylius was born in 2003 from a dream and the love for sailing of three men. Mario Sassi, Alberto Simeone and Mauro Montefusco always lived sailing as their big passion, since childhood; then, after various professional experiences in other sectors, they launched a completely new company, able to reflect their way of living and loving the sea.

In 2004 "Wednesday", the first Mylius 11E25, was launched, a boat with many great innovations, including the dinette in the bow and the large sun-bathing area aft, then copied by many different shipyards.

In 2007 the first Mylius 14E55 was launched, a fast cruiser-racer without sacrifices in terms of comfort, but winning in high-level regattas – as the two Italian ORC International Championships won by “Fra Diavolo” in 2009 and 2010. ...

Like all Mylius Yachts, the 18E35 is a fast cruiser-racer, a true “Grandturing” able to combines at best comfort, performance, quality and design. The Mylius 18E35 is a very comfortable, easy and safe yacht, with wide sunbathing areas, cosy cockpit and interiors and very complete equipments; is a very fast and balanced yacht, under any sailing conditions and with any crew, and very competitive when racing; above all, is an elegant and sophisticated yacht, completely built and rigged in carbon, with great attention to even the smallest details, to last and maintain value over time.

Furthermore, being built on request, every Mylius can be personalized based on the specific needs and desires of every owner and become a really unique yachts, able to express his own way of sailing."


and they also say about it:

"The sleek lines and the careful distribution of the hull’s volumes make it a thoroughbred with exciting performance, but also able to provide its guests with all the necessary amenities when cruising.

The boat therefore features a medium-light displacement, high waterline length and low water surface. The high sail-to-displacement ratio is balanced by the high righting moment, achieved via both the deep keel and a high shape stability, consequence of the generous beam."


I love the "medium-light displacement" part: this 60ft weights 15900kg and 6200kg are ballast.

I had already posted a short video but did not notice that there was a big one and this boat deserves all the minutes of it. I could fall in love with something like this if I had the money for it.

It is designed and engineered by Tommy Testa Dura, I mean Alberto Simeone.

Luffe 3.6



For the first time we have a decent movie on the 3.6 one that shows very well the boat. It is from the Yacht.de test on the boat. Robelz if you happen to read this one do you mind to share with us the general impressions? Yacht.de is one of the magazines whose tests are generally trustworthy.

It seems they like the boat since they comment:

"It took to Luffe 34 years to find a successor for the 37. The first contact with the new 3.6 convinced us in what regards sailing ability and interior. "

One of the things that was very well sorted out in this boat was the need of having a standing height. All modern 36ft have standing height but the 37, a very beautiful old narrow boat was far from that and the traditional low cabins that are a Luffe trademark would make that very difficult without increasing much freeboad. The compromise between these factors was very good and the boat looks elegant like a Luffe and the extra freeboard is barely noticeable.



The movie:

Robelz, I am particularly curious about what they say regarding sailing ability and this boat not being equipped with a traveler.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

What is a "standing weight"? That is a new term for me.

Babouchka and the craziest sail voyage ever.

Yes they are French and radical sailors. They had already made the Northwest passage in a sailing boat without engine and as that seemed too easy for them they are trying something more difficult: To sail the Arctic sea passing by the North Pole, yes off course it is covered with ice but they seemed not to care. They have tried two times and did not succeed, being caught in Arctic storms.

Will they give up? I don't think so, these are the king of guys that or they accomplish what they dream or will die trying. Stubborn but also incredibly brave guys that drive away polar bears with flares. I missed is last adventure because I was cruising (I followed here his Northwest passage without an engine) and I will continue to follow their mad attempts. I would not be surprised if they succeed. Sebastien Roubinet and Vincent Berthet, Chapeau to them

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Standing weight is the weight of the gear you lose when you do an accidental gybe or broach with all sails standing? It should probably include the spinnaker pole, pieces of the spinnaker and maybe parts of the mast or boom? The holding tank contents? Good question.

In what context?
Could it be some strange translation?

Looks like a typo for "standing height" = "head room" in English i think
